I apologize for the lateness of my recap, friends, but you see…there were too many feelings. This week’s episode had everything that makes Glee great, and held the most anticipated moment of the season for so many shippers…
That’s right – A WEMMA WEDDING. Let’s get to it.
Finn and Rachel meet at the Lima Bean, where Finn manages to mention Brody while also saying he doesn’t want to hear about him (me too Finn) and then confesses that he kissed Emma, yelling, “I AM THE WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD.” No, Finn, that’s still Will. You’re in the clear. Rachel basically tells him to suck it up and, since for two episodes last season he wanted to be an actor, he needs to play the role of supporting best man.
So Finn, of course, goes to find Emma, who is freaking out about the reception seating chart in her office. “All of you glee kids have dated so incestuously, I can’t remember who can tolerate who anymore.” Oh Emma, it’s about to get so much better. She has no time for Finn’s crisis of conscience and tells him to deal with it on his own, because whatever guilt he is feeling, he is the reason she has to go to her wedding lying to her fiance. As if his ego can sense when people are talking about him, Will pops up refuses to help Emma until after glee club. What a catch.
In the choir room, Will announces that he’s back to stay. I’m intrigued to see what happens with Will and Finn both running the club, since I doubt they’ll just toss Finn aside. I hope Finn steamrolls Will. Literally – I want him to rent a steamroller and run over Will. Anyway, Will decides to be magnanimous and arrange the reception entertainment (which is still not done even though the wedding is that weekend? Ok) as his one contribution to the wedding, and he wants it to be…New Directions! I, for one, did not see that coming.
Marley ruined a vintage typewriter in order to make Jake a pair of ugly cufflinks for Valentine’s Day. You don’t do that to typewriters, Marley. Jake says she’ll love her gift, too, once he gives it to her. Then he tells Ryder that he hasn’t actually bought her anything yet, because his one brainstorming session was with Puck, who suggested enough lingerie to put on a fashion show. Thankfully Ryder shuts that down and offers to help Jake give Marley a Valentine’s Week, then mopes once Jake leaves.
Rachel (fresh from her spray tanning session) meets Finn in the auditorium to help him pick out a song for his best man toast, because in addition to being the worst person in the world, his music choices also have him in the running for Least Subtle and he’s going to end up confessing the kiss via song. She offers to sing with him to take the pressure off, and Finn asks if she can handle their musical chemistry, to which she flirts back that he does look awfully cute. Let the games begin.
Remember how Will is a history teacher now because it was revealed that he’s an awful Spanish teacher? Well, he’s teaching his history class about bald eagles, so. I can’t even go down that path, that way lies madness. Ryder is being incredibly hyperactive and weird (even for Ryder) and while Marley tries to call him out on it, Jake appears in a horrendously awesome pink tux. Ryder unzips his sweatshirt to reveal a matching outfit and, along with Sam and Artie, they serenade her with “You’re All I Need to Get By.” Except she joins in on the serenade and that is not how these things work Marley. As usual, I would care more about their promises to love each other forever and ever if we had seen even a little of their relationship progression. Also, Ryder is still sad.
